Chessie and Robert’s waffle: used family car

Posted on

Chessie (of Melissa Button Boot fame) and her husband Robert are a two-kid, one-car family. Their current car is a Subaru Forester, but they are waffling about whether they should buy a larger used car. They are clear about two things: they do not want a minivan and the car must have 4WD.

Chessie explains: Now that we have two kids, should we 1) upgrade to a car with a third row at all? 2) and if we did, which of these cars would be better in terms of reliability and working well with kids? We mostly do city driving, so a good turning radius and easy parking ability are considerations as well.

Here are their top four choices. They are all 2008s.

The Acura MDX
